    I worked at Starbucks part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, it was easy to switch times with other employee's or to simply change your own availability. As a high school student and athlete I was able to get a schedule that worked with my busy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Fairly strict procedures on how each drink must be made, to how the store must be kept and the displays handled. Closing and opening shifts are a lot of extra work without any extra pay. The only other downside is that someone has to work on holidays.

    Pros

    -People are FUNKY! And so fun, at least at my location.
    -You're a part of something caring and great and people love it, I mean yeah I don't value the syrups and stuff, but I choose not to drink it.
    -benefits of course.
    -you can transfer ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, if they have a spot for you, I might transfer to France eventually!
    -super flexible scheduling!

    Cons

    -Once you move up, it's all about keeping yourself moving up, not a fan personally, but for some that's what they want.
    -The clientelle can get bitchy, but they just want they signature drink.
    -I wish the company would carry through utmost quality that they have with a lot of things with EVERY thing, but considering how big the company is...it's understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hmm, not much really, just keep improving product for the better of the client, organic, local, a bit of a day dream, but a possibility in the future.
